8£EAM§NAI NOTES. LOCAL AND GENERAL. WE are not as yet able to give our readers any further information in regard to the Northern Railway arbitration award.

COUNTRY LETTERS. (From our own correspondents.) NORTHAM, Oct. 2. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 5 October 1880

Country Letters (From our own correspondents )     I NORTHAM, Oct. 2.   Just now, the weather is the all-absorbing topic of conversation. For the past week or two, it has been very hot, and fears are begin- ning to be felt for the crops, which up to now have been doing so well, and looking on the whole so luxuriant. We can but hope for the best. Shearing has commenced, and with every prospect of an excellent clip. Perhaps it will not be inopportune or out of place if I venture here to remind flock-owners how much the price of wool at home depends upon the manner in which it leaves their hands, m proof of which I would draw attention to the superior prices realised for the Beverley wool of last year's clip, which is owing, I ant informed, to the great care exhibited in sorting and reject- ing stained fleeces. Feed, at present, is abund- ant, but the water supply is likely to be defi- cient for summer use. The annual meeting of the Farmers' Club ...

ANNUAL REPORT OF THE INSPECTOR OF SCHOOLS. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 5 October 1880

ANNUAL REPORT OF THE INSPECTOR OF SCHOOLS. We publish below the remarks of the Inspec- tor of Schools (Mr. Adkinson), upon the various schools of the colony, Government and Assisted, for the past year, as presented to the Legislative Council at ita late session. From the Inspector's Introductory report we gather that in the Gov- ernment schools there was an increase during the year of 108 in the enrolment, and 71 in the average attendance, and that the Assisted Schools show a decrease in both there particu- lars, of 30 and 19, respectively. The trifling increase of attendance in the Government Schools is mainly due to the opening of schools in new localities. The per centage of " passes" obtained by the scholars, on the occasion of their examination by the Inspector, was as follows : Reading-Government Schools, 83 ; Assisted Schools, 85. Writing-Government Schools, 86, Assisted Schools, 80. Arithmetic- Govern- ment Schools, 69, Assisted Schools 57. We notice that the relative positi...

THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. VIGILANS ET AUDAX PERTH, FRIDAY, OCT. 8, 1880. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 8 October 1880

WEST AESYIAMAW. ViGiLAKS ET AUDAX IBEBTR, FBÍDATTOCT7%, 1880. THEBE is certainly much for which as a nation we have to thank the late Prince CONSOBT. Very different might have been the history of Her Gracious Majesty's reign had not that wise firm spirit and cultivated mind guided the personal action of the Sovereign through the difficult and trying circumstances of her early life. But even the most perfect have their faults, and Prince AXBEBT was no exception to this rule-Prince ALBEBX invented exhibitions. Nearly thirty years ago, with a noble en- thusiasm and perseverance, and in spite of much harasBsing opposition and difficulty he succeeded in successfully carrying out that grand project which was destined, as he thought, to mark an era in the history of mankind, to cause swords to be beaten into ploughshares, and to promote univer- sal love and brotherhood amongst men. j The anticipations of the good Prince have ! scarcely been realized, but if imitation be i the truest flatte...

THE CITY COUNCIL AND THE CRICKETERS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 8 October 1880

THE CITY COUNCIL AND THE CBICK ETEBS. To THE EDITOB OP THE WEST AUSTBALIAN. SIE,-I see by your issue of to-day that the City Council, at their lost meeting, after considering the proposal of the M.C.C. to rent for cricket pur- poses a small area of the land lately reclaimed between the jetties, came to the conclusion that they were legally precluded from acceding to the request of the Club, but at the same time, recog- nising the importance of the question, agreed to devote £10 to levelling a small portion of the ground for a cricket pitch. Well, half a loaf is better than no bread ; and, although I must say I thought our Council would be more liberal in their views, this ¿£10 is certainly a concession-though not a very large one. But having promised this, I see no reason why more should not follow. I notice in the report of the speeches made at the meeting that the Mayor and Mr. Councillor Stone both stated that it was out of the power of the Council to alienate the land in the way...

THE PROPOSED NATIVE MISSION AT THE MURCHISON. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 8 October 1880

THE PROPOSED NATIVE MISSION AT THE MURCHISON. To THE EDITOR or THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. SIR,-I have read with interest the leading article in your paper of yesterday's date on our proposed establishment of a mission station on the Upper Murchison River. Whilst expressing your sympathy with the scheme as a well intentioned effort to ameliorate the condition of the native races of this colony, you are unable, you say, to give it the hearty support you could wish, for the following reasons : first, because the resources re- quired for the first establishment of such a station appear to you to be greatly underrated ; secondly, because there is little likelihood of men being found possessed at once of the necessary religious and philanthrophic qualifications, and of the practi- cal knowledge of pastoral pursuits which would fit them to engage successfully in such an under- \ taking ; and, lastly, because the undertaking, even j if successfully carried through, is likely to accora- , plish li...

OCCASIONAL NOTES. LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 8 October 1880

MÊASiôNAi TOTES. LOCAL AND GENERAL. THE award of the arbitrators in the North- ern Railway arbitration case, has now been made public. The award is in favor of the contractor, who ia to receive the sum of ¿3,466 7s.. öd., the Government pacing all costs subsequent to the 11th December last, which will probably amount to over £1,500. Seeing that the Commissioner of Bail ways staked his reputation upon the fact that nothing whatever was .owing to the contractor, might we inquire what has become of that reputa- tion now Ï it is idle, in the face of this verdict, simply to repeat the old assertion, as we have no doubt it will be repeated. A sane man would never commit the folly of staking his reputation upon a disputed statement the truth of which he waa not in a position to prove. And, assuming as we do, that the Commissioner was sane at the time he made that statement, .we ásenme also that he was confident-of being- able satisfactorily to sub- stantiate it. For unless he felt so confi...

Supreme Court-Criminal Sittings. (Before Ris Ronor the Chief Justice and Common Juries.) WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 6. The ordinary quarterly sittings of the Su- preme Court in its criminal jurisdiction com- menced on Wednesday last. The calendar was an unusually light one, both as regards the number of prisoners for trial and the character of the ofieuces with which they were charged. This comparative immunity from serious crimes is the more noteworthy, inasmuch as over four months have elapsed since the last gaol deli- very. There were only six cases on the calendar, four of which were indictments for larceny, one for obtaining money under false pretences the other being a charge against an aboriginal native for wounding with intent. OBTAINING MONEY UNDER FALSE PRETENCES.
